We started painting the master bedroom today
We had to 'scuff' (sand) all the shiny surfaces (they'd been painted with oil paint), and that took 2-1/2 hrs this morning. After lunch, I crawled around on my hands and knees, painting all the baseboards. That took another 2-1/2 hrs. I'm bus... Read more
Yes, we should have painted it before getting new carpet (which looks nice, by the way), but we didn't think of it. We are planning to buy paint shortly and get started on the walls and trim. The carpet does look nice, but is more mustard-colo... Read more
We're to get new bedroom carpeting tomorrow, so today was move-everything-out-of-the-bed
room day. It took 2-1/2 hrs and I'm bushed! To give you some idea, we have a headboard w/an attached light bridge, all attached to two tall (heavy!) '... Read more
e(xtraordinary) Women's Conference
I just spent a WONDERFUL weekend in Roanoke, VA at the annual conference. Friday evening we were splitting our sides laughing at Chondra Pierce, then thoroughly enjoyed a mini-concert by Mercy Me. Saturday, we had several inspirational speaker... Read more
A happy report
I stayed ahead of whatever pain there was, and am not even on aspirin or Tylenol today. Thank you, God. I am MOST grateful. My mouth is still somewhat sore - not painful - but it will get better each day. Enuf dental talk!
Friday noon, ... Read more
God is SO good! I don't have a specific thing to tell, but just that I'm rejoicing that God IS SO GOOD!
Just got home from yet another dental appt. (I think I'm paying for his 5 new computers all by myself). He finished the prep work for... Read more
Fall IS here!
Today is rainy, and only in the mid-60's - a teeny bit cooler than 'normal' for us. But I'm celebrating the fact that we aren't 92 degrees, as we were a few days ago!
I also am thanking God (profusely) for the gentle, steady much-needed ra... Read more
"They" tell us it's fall (or autumn), but someone forgot to tell 'Mother Nature' - it was 90 degrees yesterday and today is supposed to be the same! Our normal average temp this time of year is the mid-70's. We had the AC off for many days, bu... Read more
I thank God for...
In no particular order -
...for the beautiful days we've been having.
...for the rain we're getting - we really needed it
...for my husband, who is so thoughtful
...for my Mother, who led me to salvation in Christ
...for my ability ... Read more
Better Late Than Never
I bought The Spark months and months ago, but it only collected dust until recently I started reading it while treadmilling.
I'd lost weight while on SP, but 'plateau-ed' then regained some of it. I'm unhappy w/myself for doing that. Then... Read more
Uh-oh, scary article
I just read a health article on SP that seems to be saying that people who are mentally active (such as enjoying crosswords puzzles for a long time) will show greater decline if alzheimer's hits. Hmmmm. Too bad. I'm going to keep on doing thi... Read more
I set the alarm for 6:30 this a.m. (and finally got up about 10 min later); drank an Instant Breakfast then went to the Fitness Center (of the resort where we are) and spent 30 min on the treadmill. I'm so NOT!!!! an early mornin... Read more
I ate better today, but still not perfect, go figure!
Right now in my life, I'm just striving for impr... Read more

This week we took our 6 yr old and 10 yr old grandsons to Dayton, OH to the Nat'l USAF Museum. We got there when they opened in the morning, and didn't leave until almost closing time. At that (7-3/4 hrs minus 35 min for lunch) we didn't spend... Read more
